The second term has been full of exciting activities, from the field trip to Kalk Bay Harbour, dressing up like a pet, the Easter[Read More…]

The end is near…Let’s make the MOST of it!

The excitement is mounting for our little Sunbirdies, who will soon leave the nest to tackle Grade 1. The thought of ‘big school’ brings smiley grins to little faces and tears to their teachers who now have to try fathom the thought of their little learners spreading their wings. On a more happy note, the fun is not over. The[Read More…]

A MAGICAL day out!

The last field trip of the year saw our Sunbirdies whisked off to the College of Magic for a MAGICAL day out!
